Championship favorite Serbia booked their first win in Pool D by beating the Czech Republic in straight sets (25-21, 26-24, 25-23). Even though Serbia played without top player Brankica Mihajlovic due to an arm injury in the match against Bulgaria, Serbia showed great team spirit after their loss in the first match.

Czech Republic captain Aneta Havlickova: “We didn’t play a bad match. At the beginning of every set we took the lead, but by the time we got to 20 points, Serbia had already closed the gap.”

Serbia vice-captain Jovana Brakocevic: “My team played a good match, especially after the loss of yesterday’s game. The reason why we won this match was that we managed to play a strong second half of the game. But even though we got back into the tournament with this win, there is still a lot to improve.”

Czech Republic head coach Carlo Parisi: “We knew before that we had to fully concentrate on the game against Serbia, since this team is one of the strongest in the tournament. Unfortunately, we could not accomplish that. We didn’t put all of our energy in the last points of every set and that is why we lost.”

Serbia head coach Zoran Terzic: “Both teams played very well today. My team had difficulties getting into the game due to the loss of yesterday’s match. The players were still busy thinking about their mistakes from yesterday. Even though we won this match, there are still many elements in the game of my team that need to improve before going to Zurich.
